Twinkles came to IAR in 2013. On her first night in foster care, she gave birth to a litter of six beautiful kittens. Unknown to us at the time, Twinkles also had a broken hip. But she was an amazing mother and did not reveal her own pain until the kittens were old enough to be weaned.
By then, her broken hip was too far along to mend, and the only option was surgery to remove the damaged head of the hip bone. Twinkles sailed through surgery and now runs and plays with just a tiny wiggle in her walk.
Twinkles was recently returned to IAR when her family moved away. She has a sweet and quiet presence, and loves being close to her person. She will thrive in a low-key setting with a nice window for watching the world go by, lots of petting and some fake mice to stalk.
